Act 3: The Great War
Event ScheduleFollowing the events from Act 2, the foreigner assembles a bigger army and prepares to move against Hurnscald.
Even the most magicless person should be able to sense it arriving at Hurnscald Mines Entrance, ready to take over The Mana World.
After everyone gathered for the grand battle, an unknown enemy revealed themselves...
09:00 -- Zax De'Kagen's army will deploy recon units at several maps.
Every map previously used by Mana Guardians and the town siege areas will have them.
18:00 -- Zax De'Kagen's will siege a town randomly. Failure to defend it will cause town to be overrun.
00:00 -- Zax De'Kagen's will siege a town randomly. Failure to defend it will cause town to be overrun.
All sieges end 45 minutes after begin, unless town is overrun.
What means, the "town will be overrun"?
Unkilled monsters will spawn inside the town.
How difficult sieges are?
The monsters are the same, but siege difficulty should increase as time passes, and also varies based on how many players attended it.
When will the event end?
Act 3 ends when Act 5 begins.
What about Act 4?
It'll start without interrupting Act 3.
On the council meeting held right after the first invasion, Jande explained that he is the Great Dragon creator of Talpan Race, and his elemental is Earth.
He then offered to leave his army at player's disposal. However, in exchange, he would take over control of TMW towns, and several members of his army would replace NPCs.
(Spell invocation: #jande Cost: 100 MP + 1 Tiny Mana Elixir)
Even if the majority of sages was favorable to it, the majority of players present at the meeting voted against (right side of the room).
Therefore, Jande will not interfere on TMW defense against Zax De'Kagen. He will, however, coordinate broadcasts about how Zax Army is moving.
A total of 46 players attended the event (not everyone went to the event zones or to the meeting chamber).
Zax De'Kagen is a being known as "The Mana Seal". He claims to have destroyed Keshlam, the first man settlement on TMW, in four parts: One was burned, one was buried, one was sunk and one is now floating on the air, lost forever.
He says his ultimate objective is to make with current towns a better job ruining them, that what he did with Keshlam.
...But are those their real intentions...?

PS. TMWT reserves itself the right to cancel the event without a warning.
Eg. if no one shows up, if no one cares, etc. then there's little to no reason to make this interactive story. We could just write a wiki article and be done with.
So please participate <3
PPS. Zax De'Kagen reserves themselves the right to modify how they'll assault The Mana World at whim; However, event times will be upheld in every case.
